The Woman

I am not a barbie doll,
A toy in all your games.
I am not a factory,
A baby making machine.

I am someone’s sister,
A daughter,
The love of someone’s life-

I am not your slave
to beat, nor pawn to be controlled.

I am human, that I vow to teach.
I live, learn and love-

I breathe, I dream,
I shall be forever free,

This I know I will make you see.
